The best way to see if  The Hun School is a good fit for you is to visit us in Princeton, New Jersey.

We encourage all prospective students and parents to visit us for a tour and interview. Middle School students are invited to spend the day with us and attend classes. Upper School students who visit, will have a more formal interview and tour. After spending time with a student host, you will meet with an admission counselor. You can ask us questions, we’ll ask you some questions, and we’ll get to know one another on a deeper level than just transcripts and test scores.
